Blue Heron Ora Home

San Diego, California

Blue Heron, a Las Vegas-based, design-led development firm, knows the value of designing, building, and selling move-in-ready homes. Ora, a one-of-a-kind cliffside estate in the exclusive Bird Rock Waterfront enclave, is Blue Heron's second turnkey residence in La Jolla. Designed with horizontally tiered levels with glass pocket walls that blur the boundaries of indoor/outdoor living, every inch of the over 8,800-square-foot home maximizes its panoramic ocean views. The home incorporates the same innovative biophilic design and advanced Savant technology used in Blue Heron's flagship home (VM001 in Las Vegas) to enhance an overall sense of peace and well-being. "We believe that extraordinary home design is about creating experiences that amplify your life, and the Ora House is the best possible example of a home that evokes a powerful response," says Tyler Jones, Blue Heron's CEO and founder. Accessed by an entry bridge, the home's main level opens to sweeping ocean views from the kitchen and great room. Additional features include a bar and game room, pool and spa, dining room with wine display, a partially covered sky deck, and a four-car garage with a lift that transports cars to the main level or to the basement level. An elevator and four-level stairwell provide access to each floor. $35 million; theorahouse.com
